REDDING, Calif. - The city of Redding is asking for public input on city-wide Fiber Broadband internet proposal.

The city said Municipal Fiber Broadband is nearly 2,000 times faster than 5G, making it the fastest technology currently available.

It also said that fiber broadband would be significantly cheaper and would bring more competition for other internet providers.

City Manager Barry Tippin said this plan is an important step towards modernizing Redding.

"Fiber is an essential element of the future and its economy," Tippin said. "Vice Council Macaulay brought this forward to council and we agreed that we should study this so we've hired consultants and we've been doing a study - looking into cost, what elements should be required and whether it would be beneficial from a community standpoint."

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
